Mam, my son has just completed his 12 class in commerce stream. His self confidence is low and in exams he failed to give his 100% and score low marks than his capability. His is also careless in studies. please guide how we can help him and how he can improve on this. We are very much disturbed due to this. Please help...
Ans: Dear Lakhbinder,
That age is a very confusing time for youngsters as they not only have to deal with the expectations of the school and parents but also 'fit in' with their peers.
It is natural to be defocused from academics and not do their best and I do understand your worry especially if he is aiming at a highly academic course after Class 12.

In my experience, working with youngsters, this is what I have understood:

Youngsters are not careless with their studies without reasons.
- They are doing a course which they were forced into or don't have an aptitude for
- They have immense pressure at home and school to perform
- They have been subject to a lot of comparison with those performing well in their class
- They have a lot of unwanted influences through chat apps and social media apps
- They are constantly monitored as to how much effort they are putting
- They are simply giving into their rebellious streaks given the age

It could be any of the above. Do identify and if there are things as a parent you can do, kindly step in NOT as a friend but by being more accepting and FRIENDLY. If it's about focus orientation, seek an expert who in one session will be able to help him through re-training the mind hacks which are simple to follow with amazing results.

All the best!

Sir, my son has just completed his 12 class in commerce stream. We wish to send him abroad for studies and permanent settlement there. Our focus is on Canada. Please guide us and tell us the valuable diploma courses in good colleges and fee structure and other costs. Also advise if we send him after the graduation.
Ans: Hello Lakhbinder,

Thank you for contacting us. It can be a thrilling opportunity to send your son to study and live permanently overseas. Owing to its excellent educational system and friendly culture, Canada is a popular choice for overseas students. You can plan by following the advice provided here:

1. Certificate Programs: In Canada, "community colleges" or "colleges of applied arts and technology" are where diploma courses are commonly offered. These colleges offer education that is both practical and career-focused. A few worthwhile diploma programs in the area of commerce include: Business Administration, Marketing Management, Supply Chain Management, International Business, Human Resource Management, Accounting and Finance.

2. Good Colleges: Numerous reputable colleges in Canada offer diploma programs and Bachelors. Several well-known organisations with programs in commerce include: Humber College, George Brown College, Seneca College, Sheridan College, Centennial College. Making an educated choice, however, requires thorough research and comparison of colleges based on their program offers, standing, professors, and campus amenities.

3. Fee Structure and Additional Costs: Depending on the institution, program, and location, the price structure and other charges may change. In general, tuition costs for international students will be greater than for domestic students. The typical yearly tuition costs for overseas students in Canada, as of the cutoff date in September 2021, range from CAD 15,000 to CAD 35,000, depending on the program and institution. Depending on the city and lifestyle, a person's annual living costs—which include housing, food, transportation, and healthcare—can range from CAD 10,000 to CAD 15,000.

4. Graduation vs. Diploma Courses: If your son has just finished his 12th grade, he might think about enrolling in a diploma program right away. In Canada, diploma programs are intended to give students specialised knowledge and skills for particular professions. But if you'd prefer that your son continue his education, he can earn his graduation (Bachelor's degree) in Commerce in India before looking into opportunities for postgraduate study in Canada, such as Post Graduation Diploma Program or a Master's or MBA.

It's important to take into account aspects like eligibility requirements, visa procedures, scholarship or financial aid choices, and employment opportunities both during and after studies when making the decision to send your son to Canada.

For the most recent information and advice on immigration laws, study permits, and settlement procedures, it is also advised to speak with an educational advisor or get in touch with the Canadian embassy or consulate.
